Canon EOS R3: Features and Specifications
The Canon EOS R3 comes with a stacked sensor with 24.1MP resolution. The EOS R3 is primarily a sports and wildlife camera and is an upgrade to the 20.1MP Canon EOS 1D X Mark III.
The EOS R3 features Canon’s first ‘stacked’ chip, a design developed by Sony cameras such as the Sony A9 II. The EOS R3 claims to have a shooting speed of 30fps, but its lightning speed is a maximum shutter speed of 1/64000th of a second. Canon also confirmed that the EOS R3’s electronic shutter can be synchronized with external brightness (1/2 of a second).
In addition to supporting over-sampled 4K video shooting and the Canon Log 3 feature, the EOS R3 can shoot 6K / 60p raw video internally with the option to capture in its CRM (Cinema Raw Lite) format. It also has 5.76 million dot EVF with an increase of 0.76x and a maximum refresh rate of 120fps.
The R3’s rear display has a resolution of 4.15 million dots, which is almost twice the resolution of the Canon EOS R5’s rear display. Canon has also introduced a multi-function show with the EOS R3 that allows fast, two-way data transfer between the camera and compatible accessories. And the first new companions for the EOS R3 are a directional stereo microphone (DM-E1D) and a speedlight transmitter (ST-E10). They both draw power from the camera instead of being charged separately, and the ST-E10 allows you to remotely control multiple radio speedlight flashes.
The EOS R3 can hit a maximum burst speed of 30fps with full AE / AF tracking while shooting 14f bit raw files, an impressive skill that is undoubtedly unlocked with this new stacked sensor.
